It's a great serger but it did take awhile to figure out the threading. So, I'll give you several suggestions, 1) paint the metal the color of the dots where you thread through 2) Read the manual and go to Singer.com and look at the support section, there you will find "frequently asked questions" there you will find a color schematic on how to thread. 3) There are TWO levers inside the machine that will help you thread the red and the brown looper, the brown lever (it's silver and it has a half round at the end, I call it the brown lever since it threads the looper designated with a brown path. is almost directly behind the plastic that faces you when the serger door is opened, the one that controls the threading for the red looper is easier to find. That is the worse there is, it's finding those levers, now that you know, it will be easy to find and easy to thread. This machine has better lighting than the Singer stylist but the tweezers that comes with it may have an issue since it hasn't the smooth finish and you'll know it's a problem if you try to thread the needle and it catches on the tweezer, I just got myself a better tweezer and it made a world of difference. IT DOES NOT COME WITH FIVE CONES OF THREAD!!!! It has a small thread card and the machine is set up in a coverstitch configuration. Study it, Use the tie thread method the first times you want to use the machine, I suggest you use the same color thread as the color of the dots. Five colors: Orange, blue, green, red and brown, I think. I also labeled all the parts and I also labeled the order that you thread the machine, Note there's two orders of threading. 1) for coverstitch, the other for overstitch. It doesn't have a free arm, that's why I got a Singer stylist too, it does have a free arm but the lighting isn't as good on that machine as the Pro 5. If you are new to serging and don't want alot of headaches with threading you might want to get the Singer stylist, it has a GREAT CD on threading, . The pro 5 comes with a CD but it's a workbook not a video on how to thread. I think Singer would not have so many complaints on this machine had they included a how to thread CD with it. I trained on a Baby lock serger and the stitches on both this Singer and the Baby lock are comparable.

I have a huge house, but it's mainly filled with stuff for my kids. Someday I'll get rid of their stuff and have a sewing room, but that day is pretty far off. Until then, I have this sweet little setup. The cabinet is easy to store out of the way and I love the AirLift. I bought the custom acrylic insert for my Brother CS6000i and couldn't be happier. I can swing this baby out, get my sewing done and push it out of the way when I'm not using it. This cabinet is sturdy and attractive, and well worth the price if you're looking for something small and mobile.

I have made many cross stitch Christmas stocking kits as gifts when close relatives and friends have new babies. This stocking is turning out just as adorable as the many others I have done and it is very fairly priced in comparison. I will continue to use Overstock as my source for these kits in the future.

This is listed as baby yarn but I made an afghan for my teenage granddaughter out of it. The colors are very vibrant and perfect for an older child. Used size 13 needles which made the afghan knit up really quickly.

This is the GREATEST yarn I have found yet for making an item for a baby. It is so aptly named! This yarn is soft ...all jokes aside, AS a baby's bottom. I can't wait to finish this blanket and present it to the couple. I was working on the blanket at a family reunion and the comments about the quality of yarn were numerous. I am crocheting this with a letter L needle, single crochet stitch, without any tangles, unraveling and it is such a beautiful project. I'm looking forward to using this yarn to make other projects.

This is a really nice baby quilt and very easy to follow directions for stitching. I would recommend this to any beginner of cross stitch

The "Legacy" wool batting is manufactured by Pellon. I am impressed by the quality and the affordable price. I purchased a king size batting 120 x 120 inches so that I could cut it down to use for several children size quilts. I am impressed by the 1/4 inch loft and the 4 inches between stitches (for quilting). The natural wool fiber is light weight, has high insulating properties (warm) and the fiber is inherently "self estinguishing" with regards to flammability. The low shrinkage(0 to 3%) properties listed on the label is also excellent. Laundry Instructions: I will need to caution the future owners of the baby quilts to wash the quilt in a gentle soap (not detergent), in cool water on a gentle washing cycle, Also, to limit wool "felting", use a low temperature in the dryer for about 10 minutes, then allow to dry flat. (Maybe a final rotation in the dryer as the quilt gets close to being dry.)

I make a lot of baby rag quilts. I have had another brand of rag scissor for some time and thought the Softouch would have a better spring and be lighter. Maybe even easier to squeeze. No, It is the same as my old one and sometimes I have to wait for it to 'spring back". It is light and sharp. It does it's job but just a 4 not a 5.

My daughter chose this nostalgic design, recalling a Currier and Ives picture, as her last baby was born in an English village. It would remind them of the quiet and pretty place where the boy spent his childhood.

The blocks in this quilt will be fun and easy to stitch. The quilting will be both by hand and machine. I am sure it will be beautiful and loved.

I am planning to make baby bibs and perhaps a baby quilt using this doggy die cut and my new AccuQuilt die cutter. Please take note that the description says "(Pack of Two)"......I originally thought that there would be two dies but it should read that the one die cuts out "two shapes". There is the dog body silhouette shape and the second shape is the very small ear.

As a beginning quilter, I was looking for affordable batting for my baby quilts. This is a great product at the quantity and price that I need.

This yarn is very soft, and the color is exactly as shown on line. I've never seen a weave quite like this before. The plys are thinner and more tightly woven together, so they never come apart, which makes it very easy to work with. It also keeps the yarn from pilling. It's really amazing.

I was very pleased with how easy it was to use my new machine. I've been sewing for years, including everything from baby clothes to men's suits to boat canvas. The instructions were easy to follow and my 1st embroidery projects were well rec'd (great for Xmas gifts!) The threading feature is great. I'm looking forward to exploring all the features, including the optional online patterns.

I had taken on the task of trying to repair a friend's daughter's much loved, and very ratty, favorite blankie. This had been hand made by the grandmother, from parts of blankets that had been made for her own daughters, so the front was old print material, and the back was newer plain cotton. The front was ripped in places, and the batting was shot. I read a blog about someone who wanted to repair their old blanket, and one comment suggested this stuff. My Mom was skeptical, but she was thinking of heavier weight stuff that she had worked with in the past. I took the blanket apart, used this to fuse the front to the old back, and then got compatible material to make patches for the holes, and hand sewed them on the fused material, using cross stitches to match the look of the fake squares on the pattern. I got new batting, and plain cotton close to the color of the old back, to make a new back, and put it all back together. I had this for a week, and the girl had been told that they just forgot the blanket at my house. When she showed up on their next visit, I pulled the repaired blanket out and handed it to her, and held my breath, afraid she would not recognize the repaired item as her blankie, but she did not hesitate a moment, and put it up to her cheek, as always! I don't think I could have repaired it without this stuff, since the top layer was so threadbare. It is a little stiffer than the original item, but not much, partly because the new batting was a little thinner, and not fluffy, but it has more of the feel of a regular cotton quilt, so not bad at all.

I make baby blankets for friends and relatives. The crocheted edging finishes off the blanket.
